|dad+, mom-, pregnancy and hiv testing
Sep 25, 2001
I am due to have our second child within the month. My husband and I ALWAYS practice safe sex except when using ovulation predictors and attempting pregnancy. (twice now). What would be your recommendation for testing during pregnancy. Had viral load test at 6 months and was still -. Thank you for your opinions!
Response from Dr. Sullivan
Assuming you did not have unprotected sex during the six months after becoming impregnated I think you can be comfortable about being HIV negative; if you remain concerned I would suggest a HIV DNA test; JLS.
